Pierrick Bourrat

Pierrick is working as a postdoc fellow with Paul Griffiths on the ARC project "Conceptual and modeling tools for non-paradigmatic evolutionary processes". His background is in evolutionary biology and cognitive sciences. He completed his PhD in philosophy at the University of Sydney in 2015. His thesis was proposing news ways of understanding the concept of natural selection by stripping it down from its biological specificities.
